Dr. Robinson's 3-4 classroom blog from 2012-2016

The students in Dr. Robinson's 3-4 Team studied South Hero History for 6 years and took many field trips around town.
Click on this link to see where the students went around town and what townsfolk they met along the way.


At the end of 2018 Lake Champlain Access Television [LCATV] started filming our presentations. Their output is 2 to 4 times sharper than the videos I was putting up. That means it takes a little longer to get the video to start. [The reason I reduced the quality level of my videos.] Their production is different than mine and you will notice that immediately.
When you click on a video, it starts to load. It will take about 30 seconds [an eternity when you are waiting] to start playing. The speakers will start to sound and the video will look like it is not running for about 23 seconds. LCATV puts up an identification POSTER for those 23 seconds. Don't be alarmed, it is running if you can hear the sound.

Featherbed Lane

On Friday, June 7th @7:00pm the Neighbors of Featherbed Lane shared stories and photos of its ongoing history. The presentation was well attended and audience participation was excellent.  Many might not know where Featherbed Lane is [HINT: Look to the right as you get off the causeway and onto the island, don't blink or you will miss the sign].
In the day, roads and cow-paths were much the same.  Listen to the stories of the early days when it was a little bit of a challenge just to get to your property.  Having a unique name like Featherbed might conger up images and imaginary stories of how it got the name.   Bet the real story is just as unique as your imaginations.
The presenters are Dick Bingham, Ray Jacoby, and Bill and Shirley Bingham.  I don't want to say they were there since day one but maybe from day one and a half.  They have a vast knowledge of the history of the Lane.
Audience participation from NEW owners and the current Road Association President was extremely interesting and sparked lively discussions around the room.
Watch the video to see the presentation as 'taped' by LCATV to get the answers to questions that inquiring minds want to ask.
